I have Galaxy Tab 10.1 and a Droid Bioninc. How do I sync the 2.


I do not have a laptop or desktop computer. The problem seems to be that firefox see both tablet and phone as mobile devices and there does not seem to be a way to link the 2.

Unfortunately this usecase is not yet covered and there's a need to have a computer to finalize the creation of any account.

As you mention, both devices are considered Mobile devices and in both cases don't have the capabilities to create an account, only pairing to an existing account. The team is working on it and it will be soon implemented.

In the meantime, you can create an account in any computer (there's no need to keep the account active in that computer).

Use the first part of this article: How do I set up Firefox Sync?

Then look for the Recovery Key in that computer: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-do-i-manage-my-firefox-sync-acco...

After having the Recovery Key you can disable that computer by clicking on "Unlink this device" at the bottom on the preferences window that you have been using in the previous steps.

Now you can go to your mobile devices an connect them to that Sync account, to do so follow the steps described in this section: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-do-i-set-up-firefox-sync#w_what-if-im-not-near-my-computer

Let me know if this helps.
